I just had so many good deals with ops. Most of all my Toaplans, Taitos, Capcom and Sega pcbs were dirt cheap from operators.

Just those CAVEs are dam expensive since NO op in Europe or US has them.

Must admit, if I was an op and had collectors asking reams of questions and asking for photos of this, that, and the other, I'd get pretty pissed off, too! LOL

You've got to remember the dynamic of the relationship between collector and operator. 

The bottom line is ops owe us nothing. Any opportunities to raid or buy stuff should be regarded as a bonus, not a right.

Don't think that's a good idea , We clearly don't like 'OPS' so why should we support them :-).

I was very fond of my S2 Escort RS Turbo until it was stolen from Ikea car park.
Also had a Fiesta RS Turbo, but that gave me nothing but grief.

We need a retro car thread, bet there is a few members with something interesting tucked away in the garage, unless its full of cabs of course.

Best car I ever had electric blue phase 2 1400...turbo lag was astounding you would get a postcard that it was about to kick in is so laggy. They had an anti percolation fan on it to stop the fuel evaporating in the carborator when you stopped because of the heat from the turbo the only problem was they had a tendency to seize up and if had not been modded in the recall with an in-line fuse could catch fire....ahhh the 80’s simple times LOL

Anyway the short time I have been ‘in the game’ prices are going up a lot, supply and demand I guess and if someone is buying them be an Op or joe public it is still keeping cabs going that will ultimately come back on the market.


Ohh how I wish for these cabs.... Robotron..PacMan..Tron..Gorf..Defender/Stargate
